I want to punch Kelis in the face
The finger cymbals! They hit in the wrong places! ARGGGH!
Sure, she could be deliberately violating the conventions of music, but judging by the normalcy of the rest of the song, I think not.
Edited on July 7, 2007: I've identified that it's possible that the hits are evenly spaced, but simply out of phase with the music - like, they take place in multiples of something that's not divisible by the 4/4 meter of the rest of the song. It sounds like they happen a measure later each time the chorus cycles through. This does not reduce my desire to punch Kelis in the face.
